Wolfof Vancouver was bought for €130,000 at the 2019 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale in Ireland.
A strong, fast-looking colt. He made his debut on Swedish Derby Day 2020, winning by a head from Reunion Island.
He followed by finishing a short neck second to that same rival in the Lambada Cup, seemingly finding the 1200m too short.
His latest outing on 11 October was won easily over a mile while carrying top weight, and he is now 2 for 3 in his first season to race as well as the highest rated 2yo horse in training in Scandinavia.
Wolfof Vancouver is bred in Ontario, Canada, and a son of G1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner, Sire of Sires and Millionaire Eclipse Champion Speightstown (by Gone West) – pictured – who stands for a stud fee of $80,000 at WinStar Farm in Kentucky.
Wolfof Vancouver is out of Lookalike (by Dynaformer), a four-time winner on the turf in North America and already the dam of three winners from as many runners in USA and Japan.
She is herself a half-sister to the dams of G3 Discovery Handicap winner Called To Serve, G3 Clasico Jose Pedro Ramirez winner Vos and Listed winners Bridgehampton and Saritta.
Wolfof Vancouver’s 3rd dam, G3 Santa Ynez winner Hot Novel is also the dam of dual G1 Gulfstream Park Handicap winner Behrens and grandam of triple G2 winning sprinter Cowboy Cal.
Wolfof Vancouver is bred on the same Speightstown/Dynaformer cross responsible for G1 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes winner Force The Pass (see video below).
